With snowboarding and skiing season starting up, students who partake have an additional activity that makes time management more difficult.

“I go skiing after school and get back around 8 doing homework from 8-9:30,” Senior Jack Shideman said.

Having a set time schedule for doing various things is a great way to manage time.

“I think I will have to start using my class time more often and completing things in class to minimize homework outside of school so I can ski when I want to,” Junior Mia Amic said.

By leveraging in-class time, Mia aims to reduce her workload so she has freedom to ski whenever the mountains call.
Some students have a perspective that prioritizes experiential memories over academic rigor.

“If I had the choice between skiing and studying for a test I would go skiing because I’ll remember that more than the test and when I look back on life I want to say I had fun,” Mia said.

Many students that ski and snowboard prioritize moments on the slopes over school obligations.

“I would skip school or not study for a test to hit the slopes with the boys because it brings me more joy,” Senior Will Skoog said.

A significant number of students that ski and snowboard emphasize the value of living life to the fullest while still balancing academics and other things.
